CD Reviews

Soulful rock&roll - you must hear this one.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simply a fantastic rock and roll album. "Mountainside" was on the radio - the rest of the album's songs depart from this tune's style a bit, but throughout the album is wonderful soulful singing, incredible musicianship, and solid songwriting - good variety too. Favorites are "Evergreen" "Mountainside", and "Ever Made Love to Be"... You won't be disappointed."
Should've Been Much Bigger... GREAT Album! (With '08 Addendu

"I first heard Sweet Vine at the radio station I worked at in Raleigh, NC. I was hooked immediately on "Mountainside." When we started playing "Candy For Fools," I begged my boss for a copy. I had to have it!!! LOL ... And to this day, it's one of the few CDs out of the hundreds I own that actually still gets extended amounts of time in the CD player.

To me, they're on par with the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Black Crowes, etc. in terms of the passion and feel they put into their music. And they're good players too. Besides being influenced by the aforementioned bands, you'll hear a little Jim Croce (especially on 'Up To You') and some old school R & B here and there (see 'Evergreen') ... plenty to discover on this CD.

Anyway, If you dig any of those bands, even a little, check this CD out. There's not a song on here that's bad, period. It's completely listenable beginning to end - truly a great rock & roll record, and probably one of the most underrated bands of the late 90's. Very heartfelt vocals and musical performances, and a fun listen - put it on, turn it up, and enjoy!

ADDENDUM, May 2008:

It's been over 11 years since this disc came out, and 7 years since I wrote this review. And you know what? I STILL love this album. It's still great, and I still highly recommend it."
A well-written and accoustically well-balanced album

"Sweet Vine's album has captured most of the different styles of music that are out there today. By doing so, they have created their own blend and style. People who love Blues, Rock, and Jazz will really enjoy this album. I personally was impressed by the way Sweet Vine has shown its maturity for a debut album. Listen to it once and I guarantee that people will place it in there top ten albums of all time."
